Arvind Kejriwal, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) senior leader and national convener, took oath as Delhi chief minister on February 16th, 2020 at the Ramlila Maidan. President Ram Nath Kovind had on February 14th, 2020 appointed him as the new chief minister of Delhi
The AAP swept the Delhi assembly elections by winning 62 out 70 seats. The Bharatiya Janata Party won eight seats while the Congress drew a blank.
The swearing-in ceremony at the Ramlila Maidan also assumes great significance as it was from this ground that he along with veteran Gandhian Anna Hazare led a massive anti-corruption agitation. Kejriwal has taken oath as the chief minister twice before at the same venue.
